My cursor jumps around when typing

Hi.

Whenever I type a paragraph on my ASUS X5DIJ, my cursor will randomly jump to another part of my text and messes up the whole sentence. It's done it twice whilst typing this short paragraph and my flabber is definitely gasted. It's just done it again, twice more. Please help!! I'm going insane. I'm using Windows 7.

Thanks for reading.

It's probably your sleeve catching on the touchpad.

There is a freeware prog 'TouchFreeze' that will isolate the Touchpad when you start typing.

Use FN+F? - to turn touch pad off - My laptop is FN+F7 Your user guide will tell which F key for your laptop.
